didnt really see another place for this, and didnt want to start a whole new thread. Anyway freind at work and I were talking about DUNE, imagine that, we were talking about duncan as the super kwangduk, and he said the plural version of Kwitzatz Haderach, as

Kwitzatz Haderai ?

It stopped me in my tracks, laughed kinda cause never heard anyone talke of more than one. Just sounds funny, might not be correct, and not an abbreviation, just different.

Launguage, what a concept.

Fairday,

Well, if we do it in English then it's Kwisatz Haderachs.

But if you want to go to the source then it's Kwisotz Haderach.
Assuming we remain with slightly mutated version FH used for it in the first place of course.
In memory of Perach, who suffered and died needlessly.

I wish I could have been with you that one last time.

Paul of Dune was so bad it gave me a seizure that dislocated both of my shoulders and prolapsed my anus.

I personally feel that this message board, Jacurutu, is full of hateful folks who don't know
how to fully interact with people.

Quoted For Truth.

It's nerd-speak for "I agree."
"Anything I write will be remembered and listed in bibliographies on Dune for several hundred years ..." — some delusional halfwit troll.

Pure luck. If it were on the second page, I may never have seen it :)

Dammit, now that I noticed it, I have to correct you.

Bondage and Discipline
------------------Domination and Submission
---------------------------------------Sadism and Masochism

= BDSM

Being a nerd about sex is slightly cooler than most other types of nerdery, right?

Nah, it's just stickier. :wink:
I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA
